“Already tired of fighting with us, they are now fighting with some sectors of the opposition. Very well, today they sanctioned opposition leaders. This is how the empire works, those who do not dance the tune they play -the one they impose- are subject to sanctions and they make up anything against them,” he said during the usual press conference of the red awning.
In addition to Parra, parliamentarians José Noriega, Franklyn Duarte, José Brito, Conrado Pérez, Adolfo Superlano, as well as the leader of Accion Democratica, Negal Morales were included in the sanctions list.
